The Unexpected

18 Feb

Unexpectedly our dogs Fantan and Trolley needed us in Santa Fe. We are now home after a Valentine’s Day 7-hour layover in Houston. We ate twice…once in a nice restaurant…well as nice as they come in an airport…and once in a sport’s bar. Also I ate two packages of M&Ms.

But we are home now and all is well on the canine front. The sun is shining and temps are forecast to be 65 degrees today. Though we do miss that plunge pool and lime tree.

Watch for next year’s Medflies trip. So far we have researched Sintra, Portugal; Montevideo, Uruguay; Nelson, New Zealand; Naxaar, Malta and Santiago de Cuba, Cuba. Have you ever known anyone who went to Malta? to Cuba? Have you been? Please write us and give us the benefit of your experience for our 2017 adventure.

Thank you dear readers for traveling with us and sharing Merida. See you in 2017.

    We leave for Cuba in 1 1/2 weeks! Back March 17…will let you know when we get home all about it! Will inquire about the possibility of an extended stay of 3 months. By the end of this year probably it will be possible to take a commercial flight from the US which will open it up completely. We are going “legally” on a “person to person” tour with Grand Circle Foundation. Have been really hitting the Spanish – Denver immersion style! But I hear they swallow their consonants, especially s’s, and speak with a unique rhythm…maybe I won’t understand anything!
    Fuertes abrazos…

    My niece has been to Cuba, but he is,half Cuban. I can surely put you in touch. Also have a photography friend who goes frequently. Would love to hear more about this potential plan and strategies in general. When we get back, perhaps,we can get together. Let me know if you want contacts from Cuba.

      This is great Sylvia. Yes, let’s get together. All information is appreciated. The feasibility of going for three months will take all of the information I can find from every source. Have been following your trip on Facebook. Enjoy reading and seeing the entries.

      How fortuitous. It sounds like a wonderful trip. We’ll be happy to hear about your experiences and knowledge of Cuba when you are back home again. We would love to have contacts in Cuba. Don’t know how wide-spread the net is there. Our biggest challenge will be finding a 3 month catering house (?) near a market. I am hoping planning will prepare us for a very different culture.
